Time for UMS, UiTM Sabah to have faculty of law

26th March, 2016

By ADUKA JASNIN SUMAN

RANAU: It is high time for the Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) and Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) Sabah to introduce a Faculty of Law in their campus to cater to the demand from students.

Minister of Resource and Information Technology Development, Datuk Siringan Gubat said the government must consider the opportunity for the benefit of local students who wish to enrol in law studies but are unable to do it abroad.

“As a matter of fact, we are thankful that the A Level course is finally available in Sabah through the Aseana International College in Kota Kinabalu. This is a commendable development because it especially benefits our local students.

“As we also know, UiTM in the peninsula offers legal studies but not in Sabah. So considering the current development as well as the need for the growth of education in Sabah, we think it is only right for the government to take a step towards this,” he said.

Siringan who is also the Paginatan Assemblyman was speaking when officiating the Annual General Meeting for the Parents and Teachers Association (PTA) in SMK Matupang Ranau on Thursday.

Meanwhile, he commended the strong commitment by all members of the school’s PTA which was recently received awarded for managing to get a 95 per cent attendance of its members in all of its programmes.

“This is what we want to see taking place in every school. Strong commitment from both parents and teachers in the PTA is crucial in making sure excellence in both studies as well as in the co-curricular activities of our students. “We hope that every parent and teacher in the school will continue to give their dedication and maintain a fine example because this will also be a morale booster to our students.

“On that note, I wish to express my deepest hope that one day in the near future, SMK Matupang will be able to produce doctors, lawyers, professors, scientists, corporate figures and other professionals,” he said.

Also present at the event were SMK Matupang Principal, Jamirin Sahamin, the school’s PTA Chairman, Dualis Porodtong, Siringan’s Political Secretary, James Ingguru, and Paginatan People’s Development Officer, Georgina George.
